Once the first two stages of winemaking (destemming and crushing) are complete, it is time to start pressing.
However, this only applies to white wines. In the case of white wines, after the grapes are properly crushed, the must is pressed to separate the grape varieties and seeds from the grape juice.
In the case of rosé wines and red wines, these do not go through this step, because the grape skin is what will define the colour of the wine itself, while it is in the fermentation phase.
Wine production is a tradition of the centenary Ferraz family.
In total, the family owns approximately 20 hectares of vineyards, of which 5 hectares in the parish of Horta do Douro, municipality of Vila Nova de Foz Côa, in Douro Superior, and other vineyards in Valeflor, a centenary parish in the municipality of Mêda, in Beira Interior region.
